Year 1

Welcome to Year 1!

P1030921

Year 1 is a time when the boys undertake a variety of new experiences. They develop skills in working with others inside and outside of the classroom, as well as encountering new concepts on a regular basis.

Our Year 1 boys develop their literacy skills and excitedly begin to see themselves as proficient readers and writers. In Year 1 they build on their Prep foundations in mathematics to solve addition and subtraction algorithms, measure the length, volume, area and mass of objects and record data independently in tables and graphs. They engage in six Units of Inquiry with enthusiasm, asking big questions and building their inquiry skills to learn on their search for answers.

The boys in Year 1 also enjoy opportunities to develop their social skills, working with their peers inside the classroom on academic tasks and then outside of the classroom when playing at break times. Time spent with buddies in other classes also provides great social interactions and an opportunity to have ‘brotherly’ relationships.

By the end of Year 1 the boys have made significant progress, both academically and socially, and have developed into independent and enthusiastic learners ready to encounter the remainder of their school career.
